Tab title should be "Privacy risk" instead of "Privacy error" on unsafe websites

For example, go to chromium.com and test it out: the actual google site is chromium.org, so don't be on the wrong track...

 

I think "Privacy risk" is better, and instead of an "x" on top of the folded :page_facing_up:, there should be a red warning sign on top of the folded paper.  The x is only supposed to be for unloadable sites IMO.

You can send your suggestion/feedback using the feedback button on Edge (shortcuts for it are: Alt + Shift + i), that's the primary way Edge developers receive feedback.
Wait what??? Chromimum.com redirects to solomo something.com.

Strange, edge should be able to tell if a url is redirecting somewhere esle.

Nope, when I go to "http://chromimum.com/", the browser throws "ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED" Errors.

 

but the browser can't intervene if the web server is designed by the site developer to use a 301 redirect.

@HotCakeX Shawn1710 meant chromium.com, not chromimum.com.
@Deleted IDK, that happens to me sometimes. Weird. One day it shows "Privacy error" and the other it redirects to solomoxxxx.com.

Still that's okay, if you knew how redirects on web servers work you'd know that's normal.

anyone can own any available domain, then redirect it to other domains.

Chromium's (the browser) website is https://www.chromium.org/

Solomo owns www.chromium.com , an entirely different domain, no privacy risk or anything.

 

if Google was worried, they could do what Microsoft does and buy similar domains, but they didn't.

 

Edge or other browsers can't show random security/privacy errors on people's websites just because their domain is similar to other domains. that's awful.

@Kam 

so here is the answer to your post:

 

Chromium's (browser) website is this: https://www.chromium.org/

this domain belongs to someone else, not Google: www.chromium.com  (notice there is no https)

 

the error only appears when you type "https://" before "www.chromium.com"

and that is wrong. then the browser checks the certificate and gives you a certificate error. it has nothing to do with privacy.

the certificate used in https://www.solomomo.com only works with that domain. it isn't for https://chromium.com

 

and that's why you get a certificate error.

 

 

Thanks for explaining!

P.S. I'm not marking your answer as "Best Response" because my post is about an idea, not a problem.
You're welcome,
that's okay, but the example in your post isn't the right one for your idea because of what I described above.
what you were seeing is simply a user mistake. (adding https to a domain that does not have a certificate)

so another example, specially a reproducible one, would be better :)

not at the moment, haven't come across those sites in a while
